  • Close to Andalucian mountains, nature and 17km of coast
  • Within easy reach of the Cabo de Gata-Nijar Nature Park
  • Free wifi, playground and bar with a large terrace

Base yourself here with some haste if you like Spanish holidays with a difference, closeness to coast, nearness to nature parks and mountains to trek any day you pick.

This site is in a rather spesh setting to scrutinise a lot of what's on offer in arid Almeria, the most easterly region of Andalucia. The Cabo de Gata-Nijar Nature Park is within easy reach, Andalucia's biggest coastal protected area and with a full-on desert climate (yes, there be palms), as are the glittery white beaches of Mojácar – all 17km of them – and the mountain range of the Sierra Cabrera.

At base, Camping Sopalmo has pitches surrounded by carob trees, palms and shrubby gypsophilas, alongside showers and loos, free wifi, a playground, a washing-up area and a laundry room.

There's also a bar with a large terrace, and if you're here in December (again, this is a mild clime), you can put on your paper hat to have Christmas dins with the Camping Sopalmo team.

    The quiet site with good opportunities to walk and cycle. We must mention the very helpful owners that took time to explain where to visit, directions and recommended places to eat.


    Nothing at all, we would go back there as it suits us.

A perfect pretty, rustic retreat, best suited to adults. 03/03/2017

    Probably the friendliest site you'll find, beautifully managed by husband and wife team Simon and Maccu not forgetting Jaime the site warden who works hard to keep things spotlessly clean and tidy, Nothing is too much trouble to maintain guest happiness and comfort. This site is in a pretty rustic setting in the grounds of the family home. During winter months the site is occupied by several guests who have been returning year after year, a mixture of English, German and Dutch people who give the site a big welcoming family atmosphere.
    Electric hook up, and wifi are available and the pitches are all hardstanding. Shower facilities are clean and modern with hot water always available, as are laundry and washing up facilities.


    There is nothing to dislike about this charming little site, the only disadvantage for some would be it is in a remote position thus making it a peaceful retreat, therefore transport would be beneficial to get to the beach or old town etc.
    There is a bar which opens on Friday evenings during winter which is a very cosy environment.

Local attractions

Coast, nature park or mountains first? But wait, lots of trad Spanish villages are in the area around Camping Sopalmo too, so have a peaceful and sunny wander through Níjar, Sorbas, Garrucha, Carboneras and Mojácar, all within a short drive.

And leave a couple of days at least for Mojácar, as this is where (more) white beaches be. The beach resort of Mojácar Playa covers about 17km of sands and we'd suggest finding a spot and basking there for the first day. Then spend another wandering along the water and then another in Mojácar town, which has seen humans tread its terrain for over 2000 years.

Mojácar Playa is at the foothills of the Sierra Cabrera mountain range: hire a car to drive through its roads, particularly the mountain road toward Cabrera via the El Dondo and La Adelfa (there are parts where you mightn't want to look down). By foot or wheel, hikes and mountain bike rides are well-travelled paths around here too.

At the Cabo de Gata-Nijar Nature Park, a popular place with natives and non-natives, you could hike around the Sierra del Cabo de Gata mountains or go scuba diving among the marine life of its tiny offshore islands. Bird watching, photography, geology trips and boat trips are all also easily available.
